The IPCC 'looking into this':
Last night the Independent Police Complaints Commission started an inquiry to see if Leicestershire police could have done more to have prevented the stabbing.Conclusions drawn:
The IPCC is already investigating the force's response to calls for assistance made by Fiona Pilkington, who died with her disabled daughter in Barwell in October 2007.But hold up a sec. Did the police do their job?
Yes. They arrested him, and objected to bail.
Sainsbury, who is believed to have moved to a flat he owned in Hinckley after the split, was released on bail by magistrates' chairman Miss Jill Bishop despite prosecution objections.So, is anyone starting an inquiry into their decision?
Yesterday Nick Watson, clerk to Leicestershire magistrates, said Sainsbury was bailed because magistrates could 'not find any substantial grounds that he would re-offend, fail to surrender to bail or interfere with his former partner or any other prosecution witness'.
If not, why not? They will no doubt whine that they aren't psychic.
And if we accept that, why do we expect the police to be?
